Science: The Immortal Ig Nobel Awards

The 15th First Annual Ig Nobel Award Show happened this year. Don't know what they are? Here:


These are presented by the AIR, or Annals of Improbable Research. They celebrate those experiments that cannot, or should not, be reproduced. This years winners include the Ig Nobel Peace Prize going to the inventor of the kareoke machine (for finding a whole new way for us to... tolerate each other); the researh team who discovered that herrings communicate by farting; and a short speech by one of last years winners, the scientistwho noted the first ever recorded incidence of homosexual necrophilia in the mallard duck. Earth shaking stuff, truely.

Oh, there's also the Atkins Diet Musical, and operetta in four parts.
